Google HQ evacuated

Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, were evacuated on Friday afternoon after a threat was made against the ad giant.

No injuries have been reported. The offices were cleared out and cops showed up "out of an abundance of caution," said police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. We've heard that four buildings were evacuated.

However, nothing suspicious was found during a search of the campus.

"A few buildings evacuated out of an abundance of caution, now back to normal, all good," said spokes-Googler Rob Shilkin on Google+ Twitter. ®
